After 9/11, my husband sought something enlightening and tried Bikram Yoga. Knowing nothing about different yoga styles, he only picked Bikram Yoga because it was listed first in the Yellow Pages. I thought he was crazy when he described the postures and the heat. But after a few months of listening to his enthusiasm and his coaching, I gave it a try. Never having been an athlete, I had not experienced the high created after intense exercise until I tried this yoga. After a few weeks, I even noticed a new waistline and I just always felt better physically, emotionally and mentally. Now, after thirteen years, we couldn’t survive without Bikram yoga and while we try to practice together, at least three times a week, I go by myself many other days. Bikram yoga is an important part of our life, and the teachers and other students are like a family.
